Attempting to create a sql query that returns EVERY status in a given workflow. For example, given a workflow_id of "10000", I need to retrieve every status in the workflow.

Workflows are stored as xml blobs.   If your database support XML access you might be able to do it through the database.   Otherwise you need export the data and use your favorite script language xml parser.

You can export the workflow as xml.  Follow the directions for exporting the workflow in the sharing your workflow doc and choose 'as xml' instead of 'as workflow'

If you really are looking for every status you can search for jira.status.id attirubute then then use the parent step node to get the name attribute.

If this is a one time thing, then just use your favorite text editor. It will be quicker.

Workflows are not stored in a format that will let you extract it with plain SQL.

As Nic noted, this can't be done via given JQL function. Tell us more about what you are aiming for and what do you want to understand from the data. Maybe someone could help with a workaround
